COMPAT5X doesn't show up anywhere in /usr/src/; I do have 'options COMPAT_FREEBSD5' defined, though (stock SMP kernel). > - Does running `nvidia-xconfig --query-gpu-info' reboot the system? > - If you do not load the nvidia kernel module, but use Xorg's "nv" driver does > this reboot the system? No, doesn't reboot the system. Output attached below. With the 'nv' driver, X starts fine. I don't use it because I don't have success with the two output displays and xinerama window sizing. nvidia-xconfig --query-gpu-info: Number of GPUs: 1 GPU #0: Name : Quadro FX 3450/4000 SDI PCI BusID : PCI:7:0:0 Number of Display Devices: 2 Display Device 0 (CRT-0): EDID Name : DELL 2001FP Minimum HorizSync : 31.000 kHz Maximum HorizSync : 80.000 kHz Minimum VertRefresh : 56 Hz Maximum VertRefresh : 76 Hz Maximum PixelClock : 162.000 MHz Maximum Width : 1600 pixels Maximum Height : 1200 pixels Preferred Width : 1600 pixels Preferred Height : 1200 pixels Preferred VertRefresh : 60 Hz Physical Width : 410 mm Physical Height : 310 mm Display Device 1 (CRT-1): EDID Name : DELL 2001FP Minimum HorizSync : 31.000 kHz Maximum HorizSync : 80.000 kHz Minimum VertRefresh : 56 Hz Maximum VertRefresh : 76 Hz Maximum PixelClock : 162.000 MHz Maximum Width : 1600 pixels Maximum Height : 1200 pixels Preferred Width : 1600 pixels Preferred Height : 1200 pixels Preferred VertRefresh : 60 Hz Physical Width : 410 mm Physical Height : 310 mm -- Darren Spruell [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
